Assalamu’alaikum, ahlan wa sahlan, bienvenido!
I’m taking a break in between work. Kerja sendiri memang tiada istilah working hours. All hours are working hours! No, I’m not complaining, I’m having the time of my life, Alhamdulillah. I get to bring my kids to the office. Even if I don’t sit and seriously ‘teach’ them something, I’m happy because I get to be with the kiddos.
Today, Muhammad bought me lunch because I was too occupied to leave my workspace. He told me he chose his favourite lauk for me! How nice, Alhamdulillah. I gave him upah 50 sen. He’s happy, my tummy’s happy, Alhamdulillah.
These past months have been really hectic, in a good sense. Our family have a new addition (edition?), sorry, two extra members now. I have six kids, Alhamdulillah.
No pregnancy took place…hahaha..
We have Muhammad, Musa, Maryam, Sarah, Sakinah and Ahmad.
We are babysitting our niece and nephew. Their parents flew to Mekkah to be the guest of Allah. MashaAllah.
Our homeschooling activities continue as usual. I must say that my significant other handles most of the ‘lessons’ with the boys and Maryam. Normal routine – Kawashima in the morning, then Score A, reading, writing, playing computer games in between. After lunch, mostly playtime!!! Yee haa!!! Then maybe (hahah maybe) another round of Score A.
Note: It’s not the ‘A’ that we are after. No-sir-ree. We subscribe to Score A because it is easier to keep track and record the kids’ progress through e-learning program. The funny thing is, to register for Score A, we have to put the school name. So, guess what? We just typed – HOMESCHOOL.
The kids can ‘jump’ and advance according to their own pace. Musa, 7 claims that the Year 1 exercises and tests are “boring” so we upgraded him to year 2 and 3.
Anyway, our h-s syllabus is very simple: reading, ‘riting, ‘rithmetic, and recitation of the Quran plus running ’round and play.
